Obviously, I need a lot of clue here.  Perhaps I can trade  :-P

Maybe we are already past this version, but the above install had 
"nothing to do".

And I don't see where I have any excludes.  not in my /etc/yum.conf or 
any of the repo files.

I suspect what I need to do is create that local repository already.

I see a thread on downloading updates, but I remember some earlier 
threads on YAM. 

Considering all the hung updates, I may very well want to have a local 
repro....
